“one of the Bay Area's top surfing spots”
Picture a 3.5-mile stretch of white beach with few tourists and no highrises. It's just you and the waves and the seabirds at Ocean Beach, on the westernmost border of San Francisco, adjacent to Golden Gate Park. Great for strolling and flying kites, but the water is frigid and the currents hazardous for all but the most experienced surfers. On January 25, 1878, the King Philip, a three-masted clipper ship, drifted onto Ocean Beach and foundered. From time to time, the wreckage of the ship still emerges from the sands just offshore, most recently reappearing in Nov 2010
So beautiful!! It was a gorgeous clear day to go! The water is cold but I found it easy to get used to! The beach wasn't too littered and not too crowed. I'd suggest going on a clear warm day!
Cool beach with great views of some ocean rock and tons of space.
You can find a lot of fun activites going on at this beach. I've seen vendors selling wares, artists decorating the sands across the beach, models being photographed by the crashing waves, and sandcastles abound. Always a beautiful and cool spot to hang out if you want to get away from the buzzing City.
